    Oh, and by the way, no eggs today.

  2. How lovely to have sowed not only food for the body, but food for the soul (no hyacinths, though). But does he mean “violets,” rather than “violas”? Otherwise, a musical garden!

  3. The Ridger says:

    “Viola” is the genus name for pansies and violets etc, and it’s also used for a number of flowers. As Wikipedia (quick and easy lookup) says “Viola and violetta are terms used by gardeners and generally in horticulture for neat, small-flowered hybrid plants intermediate in size between pansies and violets.”

  4. I’ll go with the sweet sound of The Four Seasons (1723) in an exotic arrangement for 1,000 violas undulating serenely on the breeze.

    As we sow, we reap:
    Eric must feed his body,
    George must feed his soul

    It sounds like he’s planted a lot of stuff, not sure what will grow there and what might not. Had the seeds, thought he’d try it. Sow at lot of different stuff, see what can be reaped. This is a very open and artistic mindset, to my way of thinking.

  7. As I was rummaging around in the past, investigating the art scene of 1938, I was reminded (not that I ever knew) that Orwell’s Homage to Catalonia was published just 7 months ago in April 1938.
